No family life, company demands are unrealistic. Constantly setting up employees for failure. Never know what the company policies are, approved materials to use, company does not pay bills in timely matter so logbook info is always at least 3 months behind. I have had to go to city halls and pick up business licenses myself, because company doesn’t pay their bills. I have been asking for the last five years why we can’t get licenses, and insurance documents in a timely matter for our customers, the response I get is we are just to big. I worked for a company bought by Rentokil for 22 years, I’m sad to say I hate going to work now, and currently looking for employment elsewhere. I’m so embarrassed wearing the uniform, because of the reputation now of the company. Use to be a fun place to work that provided quality service. Now it’s all about District and Regional Management getting their bonuses at customer, and employees expense.

Streamline the business model, there are too many middle managers, each district office has several managers and each office does their own thing, the company needs to have one system that all employees follow not each office doing it's own thing

I have been there 22 years, I get 4 weeks vacation, but can maybe only use 2. We are under staffed, and don’t have the employees to take time off. It’s been this way since Rentokil took over the company I work for (Western Exterminator). Vacation is payed, but only your hourly, which is a joke. If I take a week off, my check is $600-$800 less due to lost incentive pay. Before supervisors would run your accounts when on vacation, so you would still get your incentive pay. Old company (Western Exterminator) didn’t believe in penalizing employees financially for taking their vacation time. Rentokil is greedy, and heartless.
